Coyotes (-130) - This one is more about the Senators struggling than it is about the Coyotes being hot. The Senators have lost 6 in a row and 16 of their last 18 games. Their last 3 losses have come by 3 goals each. These two teams played earlier this season on Oct 19 and the Coyotes won 5-2. Let’s bank on the Senators struggles to continue and the Coyotes to get this win for us tonight, they are the better team.
Islanders (+120) - Why are the Islanders underdogs tonight? Is it because they have scored 5+ goals in 3 out of their last 4 games? Is it because they have won 4 of their last 5 and the Preds have lost 3 out of their last 5? Is it because the Preds are 1-6 in their last 6 home games? Is it because the Preds are coming off of an ugly 6-2 loss? These questions will need to be answered when the game is played tonight but I’m feeling pretty good about taking the Islanders at plus money with these trends.
Wichita State (-3) - The 17-6 Shockers will be on the road tonight taking on the 13-10 UCF Knights. These two teams just played eachother on Jan 25 and Wichita won that game 87-79. Some key take aways from that game were that Wichita State outrebounded UCF 45-28. Wichita turned the ball over 5 more times than UCF and still won by 8. Wichita’s largest lead was 16 in that game. Wichita was home for that game and tonight’s will be on the road but they overmatched UC in the first meeting. Wichita has also lost three straight games since that game against UCF so they are looking to break out of their slump and work on their resume for the tournament. Go Shockers!
